Features the most current methods for determining precise levels of radiation exposure using state-of-the-art instrumentation. An international selection of experts in the field from the United States, Europe and the Middle East have presented 13 comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers in two key categories:
Applications of ICP-MS in the Nuclear Fuel Cycle -- Topics covered include ICP-MS use for isotopic composition assessment in uranium products; refinements for the precise determination of uranium isotope ratios; on-site applications ranging from environmental monitoring to defense waste vitrification; and ICP-MS applications toward nuclear waste management in France.
Applications of ICP-MS in Health and Environmental Monitoring -- Key issues examined: On-line sample processing techniques for the determination of actinides in natural waters; Radionuclides determination in clinical media; and ICP-MS methods for the characterization of geological media.
This publication is an invaluable text for analytical spectroscopists, radiochemists, nuclear fuel fabricators, geochemists, environmental restoration companies and Department of Energy contractors.
